From a 22oz bottle. Poured into a schooner. No best before date.
A - deep brown with voluminous tan head that leaves stringy lacing around the glass.
S - brown sugar, molasses and ample caramel malts on the nose.
T - subtle, with little hop profile and the caramel malts creeping up to the tastebuds. The caramel and molasses have a profile that lasts and lasts.
M - very subtle carbonation with a light body.
D - killer drinkability - little alcohol profile even though it clocks in at 7%.
Solid. Nice to see a delicious brown ale.

Pours a deep molasses or maple syrup brown body with ruby hues beneath the generous tan head which slowly dissolves to leave a constant sticky lacing about the glass.
Sweet brown sugar and molasses float from the glass as advertised. Perhaps some dark fruitiness like plum is there as well. There does not appear to be much of a hop presence, perhaps some earthy notes but that's about all.mm
The flavor is a bit sweeter than the nose lead on with intensified brown sugar and molasses with a hint of maple syrup. There is a dark bready malt quality as well- like marble, with a biscuity quality but the beer finishes as sweet as it started.
On the fuller side in body with generous carbonation and a sweet, smooth finish.
A nice example of the style overall, not just specific to American Browns. I would argue that despite being a west coast brew it really borders on the English style if you swapped out the nuttiness for sweet sugar, but no real hop presence I could detect.
